    I have been working at Florida Office of the State Attorney full-time

    Pros

    Office is closed most holidays (including Jewish holidays) and when court is closed.

    Cons

    The amount of work support staff is expected to do is extremely overwhelming. It's two attorneys to one secretary, but should be two secretaries per one attorney. The pay is too low to live on, and medical benefits are okay but not great. It is the State, so salary doesn't increase, nor is there money to hire more help. There is also a lot of nepotism. Employees managing family members, neighbors working under each other,...

    Advice to Management

    Don't get on the secretaries when they get behind in their work. It is IMPOSSIBLE for one person to do the amount of given on a daily basis.

    I have been working at Florida Office of the State Attorney full-time

    Pros

    None. Maybe being in air conditioning.

    Cons

    This place is a scam. They get you in the interview saying you’ll make a certain amount but that’s far from the truth. You’re basically a slave to the attorney’s for $9-$10 an hour. There is favoritism and you’ll be micromanaged like crazy. The workload is a lot to be paid so little. Attorney’s there are very crude and nasty, cursing and yelling while you’re trying to work. People there for over 20 years make decent money....

    Advice to Management

    Pay more for the work load support staff provide. We are more than just “assistants.”

    I have been working at Florida Office of the State Attorney full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Benefits are ok at best.

    Cons

    Favouritism is rampant, Hr is in on it, there is no one that you can speak with, no 1800# to call. If your not shaking your butt or giving presents then you dont have a chance. If you try to speak up they threaten your job. Pay sucks, and never goes up, but i wish that was the only Con, I could live with that.

    Advice to Management

    Wouldn't matter, they don't listen. Need to be investigated!!!

    I have been working at Florida Office of the State Attorney full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Benefits are great along with job security.

    Cons

    Low pay with no salary increases for support staff. Low morale due to being short staffed and more duties being added.

    Advice to Management

    More focus on support staff and they're needs. Without them the organization will buckle. They are a vital asset and should be treated as such. Stop with the favoritism of select employees.

    I worked at Florida Office of the State Attorney full-time

    Pros

    Benefits that included paid time off and good health insurance for a cheap price. Great work structure and policies for professionalism. Friendly co-workers

    Cons

    Pay did not match the level of stress and work load for the position. Only get paid once a month and could barely make ends meet with the salary. Have to pay for your own parking. Not allowed to park in the front parking lot unless you are an attorney or "favored" by administration. Hard to get a promotion and move up within the organization unless you are a brown noser. Even if you do get a promotion, you are not guaranteed...

    Advice to Management

    Pay more to the hard working people that deserve it and promote people based on their skills and dedication to the company, not because they're someone's daughter who works on the 4th floor.
